An ordinary day…

Today is a new day in my faith journey, a day not that much different to many others, I went to work, picked up shopping on the way home, washed dishes, chatted with the family and this evening had a cuppa with a friend and that’s the point when an ordinary day became extraordinary.   You see, my friend and I are both on a journey, the same faith journey actually, well its the same but God takes us to different places because we are very different people….  both of us are looking for the same thing ….  becoming closer to God.

It’s true that sometimes when we are heading for the same destination as others we don’t always meet on the road because we start from different places at different times, we take different routes. we stop at different scenic points and are persuaded to take different detours.  But today my friend and I met in a mutual place,  we are both reading a book called ‘The Sacred Romance’  (Brent Curtis and John Eldredge) the book is an invitation to leave behind the falseness of our over-busy lives and explore the deepest longings of our hearts.  I feel as if I’m on the edge of the most important discovery mankind (or at least my small corner of mankind)  has ever made.   It feels like coming home and smelling an amazing dinner cooking,  you haven’t yet tasted it but you just know its going to be great and I can’t wait to tuck in!

    I too am interested in this subject… I was contemplating the poverty here in the UK and our inability to deal with that fairly in church never mind abroad. I had a friend in Southampton, who with some friends decided to employ a pastor. There were 8 couples and the pastor got the average salary of the earners. I don’t know if you have come across such radical thinking , but without it we are in a quagmire of management speak.

      Hi Kate, that sounds pretty amazing and actually a very good compromise, why should a minister get paid a much higher salary than his congregation, especially if the resources the members have are limited. Its also a pretty big ask for 8 couples to support a pastor and I imagine took a lot of faith but I do think we need to get back to remembering that it is God’s church and that He will provide what we need.
